Greetings Redditors, This is Sanjay and Greg from E3D-Online- a 3D Printing startup based in the UK which is determined to change the future of manufacturing. We’ve created a new type of 3D printer which lets you make parts that combine multiple materials into a single print, as well as use a precision milling cutting head to achieve much more precise parts with much smoother surfaces. This works by having a printer that can pick up and put down tool-heads from a dock at the back of the machine. This lets you have a few tool heads loaded with printing material, and a tool head loaded with a precision milling cutter.
We’ve recently released this as ‘ASMBL’ (Additive Subtractive Manufacturing by Layer) for our ToolChanger & Motion System, which in our opinion represents one of the biggest advancements in FDM 3D Printing technology in the last 10 years.
We're just a small team from the UK who are super passionate about 3D Printing and developing its tech as much as possible for the rest of the world to enjoy, so naturally the ToolChanger is fully open source.
Here's Sanjay talking about the tech in its early state back in 2018. https://youtu.be/jfopGYO0r-M
Here's the latest version of the ToolChanger with our ASMBL upgrade. https://youtu.be/C7wYfaHT1g0
